I have a guitar that I inherited from my grandmother about 10 years ago. She told me a long time ago that the guitar was left to her by a boyfriend she had back in her 20's. She was supposed to hold onto it for him and he would return to get it back from her. He gotten it handed down to him from his father. From her story and her age at passing and her approximate age of obtaining the guitar, I date it to be from the 1940's or later. My grandmother had spilled white paint inside it along time ago and cleaned it out with paint remover, which removed half of the label. The serial number is gone and I have been searching through photos and picking the brains of experts for years to find out more information about the guitar. I want to know who the maker is, how old it exactly is, what the serial number might have been, and how much it is worth? I have gotten few answers. I don't have a working digital camera, because I dropped it in the lake. I took some pictures with my camera cell phone. The pics are kinda dark and hard to see. The boarder of the label that is still visible is almost identical to Antonio Hernandes guitar labels, but much smaller, different font typing, and corners of the boarder are boxed. The label says Mexico city, Wilson, and not much else noticeable.

Ron, That's a nice score. Have you tried anyone in Mexico (online)? I like the story, must have been during the American/Mexican war or WW1. Any way's that's a thumbs up. Jim I.
No not yet. I will search more and keep my eyes out for people in mexico on the sites. I have gotten mixed responses from the local pros at the shops.
